Move To Canada From The US

Every year, more than 10,000 people Immigrate from the United States of America to Canada each year. Those people move to our great country with hopes of getting better work or education. But how are they migrating?

Most of our neighbouring citizens move to the country through amazing pathways that are offered by the government of Canada.

These are the most used pathways by Americans when they move to our country:

Express Entry

The Express Entry is the main method of Canada to bring in skilled workers into the country and offer them permanent residency. The good thing about this program is that the United States of America is one of the leading source countries who immigrate to the country.  The reason why this is one of the most used pathways is because of the fact that it offers permanent residency and applications are processed within 6 months.

Family Sponsorship

If you have a common-law partner or spouse that is currently living in Canada, they can also offer sponsorship and bring you in the country!

Permanent residents and citizens of Canada can sponsor their spouse or common-law partner and obtain the permanent residency status. The best part about this is that Canada recognises same-sex marriages or same-sex partners.

All you have to do is make sure that your spouse or common-law partner meets the standard eligibility requirements of Canada.

Work Permit

Another legal way of migrating to Canada is by obtaining a Work Permit, which allows a foreign national to legally work in the country and apply for Permanent Residency in the future, which happens when they manage to get the minimum eligibility requirements for this type of pathway.

In order to get this, you need to obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), which is a document that you need before you can legally work in the country.
